Baking up Life Skills

The Discovery Center, a neighborhood child enrichment center that moved into its new home on East 137th Street last year thanks to a partnership between Concerned Citizens Community Council, the Cuyahoga Land Bank and Cleveland City Council, began offering its children’s programming again this spring.

With enhanced activities – all offered free of charge – focused on life skills, entrepreneurship, art, education, and family supportive services, the Center is again making a difference in Cleveland’s Mount Pleasant community.

One of the more popular interactive activities offered at the Center is a biscuit baking class, in which children and single mothers learn cooking and math skills in a fun environment.

Concerned Citizen’s Director Anita Gardner has been instrumental in ensuring that this worthy neighborhood resource remains open to help guide neighborhood children in making wise and healthy life choices.
